Floyd Mayweather ran his record to 49-0 all-time when he stepped into the ring one last time this weekend.
We all know Mayweather’s retirement will stick as well as a Rolling Stones farewell tour. Perhaps that’s why the public didn’t really buy into his bout with Andre Berto. As ESPN reported, there were still thousands of seats left just days before the fight, and after Mayweather dominated Berto for 12 rounds – as everyone knew that he would – few people were left regretting their decision to, I don’t know, watch Boston College rout Howard, 76-0.
If that wasn’t bad enough for a guy whose nickname is “Money,” Floyd is also in hot water for using an illegal IV before the Pacquiao fight/sedative in May. Caught between a dud of a last fight and allegations that he’s a cheater, it’s not looking like the best time for Mayweather to walk away from the sport of boxing.
So, instead of glorifying Mayweather’s inarguably impressive career, we’re going to speculate on what’s next for the welterweight champ.
Maybe this really is the end; maybe he’ll just retire to the woods and write his autobiography.
More than likely, he’ll come back to what he does best: “technically sound” boxing that never loses yet frequently disappoints.
